CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Commerce Signals– the marketing technology innovator that has pioneered solutions for measuring and improving marketing impact on in-store sales in near-real time – has announced the addition of four senior roles for its Executive Leadership team. The hires are part of a nationwide expansion strategy that follows the recent acquisition of $12 million in Series B funding and the successful signing of four of the top 15 retailers and restaurants as Commerce Signals clients.
“Marketing measurement using aggregate consumer payments data is not new, but it has been slow and complex. The delay in reporting meant most campaigns were already complete, limiting the value of the data. ” explained Commerce Signals Founder and CEO, Tom Noyes. “Our strategy at Commerce Signals is to enable retail marketers to drive more in-store sales with every digital campaign using the fastest-possible intel. Adding experienced resources to our team is an essential part of delivering on that promise.”

Mangiapane has a 20-year track record of driving profitable brand growth for companies including Procter & Gamble, Newell Rubbermaid and Ingersoll Rand.
Chris Hammer joins the team as Executive Vice President of Product, responsible for the development and evolution of the company’s solutions and strategy that help advertisers, agencies and publishers optimize and measure ads with real sales insights. Hammer comes to Commerce Signals from Nielsen, most recently as the Senior Vice President of Product, where he spent more than 18 years focused on creating innovative marketing solutions designed to better segment audiences and measure and report advertising effectiveness.
